After attending the 11th Annual National Day of Silence, an effort to protest the abuse against Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender (LGBT), Erin Davis experienced an embarrassing and shocking hate crime. When she returned to her car, she saw the graffiti “fag” and “u r gay” written on her driver’s side window and at the hood of her car. This gave her an idea to use this incident to support her cause, instead of being angry about it.
Fagbug is a documentary film directed and starred in by Erin Davis. The film follows her throughout her 58-day road trip around the United States and Canada using her vandalized car which became famously known as the Fagbug. We get to see the people she met during her trip and their different stories. And we get to see the Fagbug getting a makeover a year after the incident.
